The elite series makes its return for a new collection featuring Nike Basketball signature athletes Kobe Bryant and Lebron James, with the introduction of Kevin Durant into the fold.
A different take focused on performance and elite materials, the shoes feature Kevlar aramid, carbon fiber and articulated foam to withstand the vigorous maneuvering on the court. Nike adds a superhero twist as the backstory for the collection with Bryant, James and Durant in their armor reflecting the colorways of the shoe.
Each shoe will make its debut in the postseason like the prior collection before it. Expect a release of April 27th on Nike.com and specific retailers.
